Qu.2. How effective is thecombinations of your mainproduct and ancillary texts?
The E4 brand representation was consistent through all three pieces ofmedia. In my trailer, common convention of purple background and white text represents the brand. Also the E4 logo and E4 twitter link also represent the brand. In my magazine, the mention of ‘FRESHERS’ represents the brand as its also an E4 show. In my poster the American typewriter font and E4 logo represent the brand
I used the synergy of the twitter link throughout my media products as itis a very popular social network at present with my target audience andso may widen the popularity of the show. Twitter link in my trailer Twitter link in my magazine
I chose to Crystal to be my icon and represent the show in all three media products because she plays the lead role in the trailer and is therefore the most memorable.I also chose Crystal as her style is something that not only represents theyoung, stylish E4 brand but is something that the target audience can admireand aim to be like. Her stylish clothes also represent the wealthy region.Her feisty attitude is also something that may cause controversy betweenmembers of the audience and so by featuring her in all of the mediaproducts it draws attention to the show and causes conversation whichincreases popularity.

Also the way that the secret of who is side, again re-enforces she is controlling the sending the text. the theme of secrets characters like puppets also shows control.
The point of view of Sierra is shown through the three media products. Sierras point of view is shown in the trailer through title cards in which she tells her thought process throughout the story. Sierras point of view is again shown in the billboard as she feels she is in control, knowing secrets that nobody else knows. It also shows she thinks she’s better and above everyone else. Crystals point of view is shown through the magazine. The wink suggests that she isn’t feeling guilty about what she’s done. Also the way that she’s telling the audience to keep quiet suggests she too feels powerful.
